Join us for the 2017 Oregon Program Evaluators Network conference! This year’s theme is Encouraging Excellence through Evaluation Capacity Building, and we are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Jean A. King, who will be presenting on Transformative Evaluation Capacity Building: Mission Possible?

The day will also include breakout sessions, poster presentations, an information exchange, and a post conference happy hour. This conference brings together evaluation users, practitioners, and funders to gain a better understanding of how to approach evaluation capacity building that will better inform our work. Jean King defines key terms as follows:

Evaluation Capacity: “The competencies and structures required to conduct high quality evaluation studies (capacity to do) as well as the organization’s ability to integrate evaluation findings into its decision-making process (capacity to use).” (Bourgeois, Whynot and Theriault, 2015, p. 47)
Evaluation Capacity Building: “Intentional work to increase the ability of an organization to conduct and use evaluation.” (Jean A. King)
